BISS 6.16.16 STEELY DAN / THE FUNKY METERS / SIERRA NEVADA WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL / MUDCRUTCH!

Best of the BISS List 
By Staff Writers: Sunny Powers & Casey Sol. 
In conjunction with Miss BISS

The Sun is shining and the living is easy here in the city by the bay this weekend...and it is good to be BISSful!

Per usual there is so much to do we can't even fit it all of the list...good thing we only pick the best of the best at the BISS List!

Thursday is filled with giveaways! Start the love train today with the sex you up music of STEELY DAN & STEVE WINWOOD at the Shoreline or if you are farther down south check out DOOBIE DECIBEL SYSTEM **WIN TICKETS** at Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz featuring JASON CROSBY, ROGER MCNAMEE, PETE SEARS, DAN LEBOWITZ & JAY LANE...that sounds like a doobie smoking show!! Don't forget, every DDS show includes an awesome, original poster - tonight's poster was beautifully crafted by Lauren Yurkovich! Over at The New Parish you can check out the one and only vocal powerhouse, SALLY GREEN, of SAL's GREENHOUSE  **WIN TICKETS**! Here's one more giveaway for ya, THE HIGHWAY POET'S & HOT MOUNTAIN DIPS **WIN TICKETS** will be at Doc's Lab. If you're in the east Bay, check out the beautiful and soulful, AMETHYST STARR, over at Penrose.

Friday we have the start of the SIERRA NEVADA WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL featuring DON CARLOS, LEE "Scratch" PERRY, PABLO MOSES, FORTUNATE YOUTH, NO-MADDZ , ALAINE + More! Festival season is here!!!

Also on Friday we have Biss Favorite MONOPHONICS in Cloverdale playing a FREE show!  In the city head down to The Boom Boom Room for VICTOR LITTLE'S BIG HIT featuring a EARTH WIND & FIRE duel vs PRINCE **WIN TICKETS**. We also have a giveaway for DONAVON FRANKENREITER with TOM CURREN **WIN TICKETS** at The Independant. Once upon a time, Casey was hired by Donavon to hand out fake mustaches and watermelon to the crowd. Bizarre. You can also catch BRIAN BLADE & THE FELLOWSHIP BAND will be at Miner Auditorium if you're feeling jazzy!

Saturday during the day get your horns blown with the BRASS CONVERGENCE featuring Jazz Mafia Horns & ADAM THEIS...looks like the drinking game is starting early on Saturday! We will all be getting funky with THE FUNKY METERS **WIN TICKETS** at The Fillmore...you know the whole BISS crew will be out in full effect to watch GEORGE PORTER JR and Friends funk it up and you know George will be Jammin in some Tiedye!  Of course if you feel more like "cutting a rug" check out THE DUSTBOWL REVIVAL**WIN TICKETS** at The Independent. Sometimes you really just have to switch it up...and if Saturday is that day for you, maybe you should stop by Mezzanine to check out DMX. There is another soulful jazz legend at Miner 
Saturday night, be sure to catch ROY AYERS. At Public Works, HUSHconcerts & Blasthaus Present: NIGHTMARES ON WAX (DJ SET), PLATURN, & MOTION POTION. Also, don't forget about the 2nd day of SIERRA NEVADA WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL...TOOTS & THE MAYTALS, BERES HAMMON, ISRAEL VIBRATION, AFROLICIOUS, and more will be hitting the stage!

On Sunday, The Boom Boom Room is hosting a FREE movie premier of TEAR THE ROOF OFF: THE UNTOLD STORY OF PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC. Over at The Fillmore, the band that made TOM PETTY famous, MUDCRUTCH, will be performing. Lot's of hype around that one, let me tell ya. WIL BLADES will be playing his not to miss "SUNDAY SESSIONS" STRAIGHT JAZZ NO CHASER! at MADRONE ART BAR. Once again, third awesome show of the weekend at Miner Auditorium - STANTON MOORE w/ special guest DAVID TORKANOWSKY, JAMES SINGLETON, NICHOLAS PAYTON, & CYRIL NEVILLE will be Sunday evening...that certainly feels like a good end to the weekend! Last, but not least, we have DEBAUCHERY SHOW w/ RASA VITALIA at Whitehorse Bar to celebrate her birthday! It's a FREE show but all proceeds are donated to LGBTQ Foundation, so please tip Rasa, you're in for a wild show!
If you start hearing all the good things about MUDCRUTCH after Sunday's show, don't worry, you have one more chance on Monday night to catch them again at The Fillmore! Also on Monday, American blues guitarist, COCO MONTOYO **WIN TICKETS**, will be at Yoshi's.  

Tuesday rolls in with, JOE JACKSON at the Palace of Fine Arts. On a different key, 3 DOORS DOWN will be at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

Right into hump day, which could be any day for some of you readers, but we'll just refer to Wednesday here... we have tickets to give away for SMOKED OUT SOUL Ft. DJ ZEBUEL, WILL MAGID, PAUL OLIPHANT, & ENRIQUE PADILLA **WIN TICKETS** over at Monarch and THE BLANK TAPES & THE PESOS at Brick & Mortar  **WIN TICKETS**. PS - if you missed JOE JACKSON the other night, you can catch him again over at The UC Theater Taube Family Music Hall.

Hopefully, that's enough for you until next week's edition of BISS! Have fun storming the castle, kids!

One thing is for sure...music melts the soul...and makes you feel free.

All our Sparkles....
